Kitchenaid gas cooktop igniter

I have a KitchenAid gas cooktop (around 2005) Model #KGCS105GSS06, with an inoperable igniter on one burner - the one I use the most of course. It clicks but doesn't light. I can light it with a lighter, but that is getting old. I tried cleaning the igniter, and noticed the little ceramic cover is cracked. Doing a part search, it shows the part surrounding the igniter, and it's pretty pricey. Can I replace just the little igniter? I'm having difficulty finding just the igniter itself.
Thanks for your assistance.

The igniter is replaceable but there is no part number shown for it by itself. I have different styles here but it can be difficult to pick the exact one without being there. A typical replacement igniter electrode runs around $20. I'm seeing some rock bottom prices on burners with the igniter. That's the way I would go. Just take the igniter off.

OEM part # WPW10155786. Use this part number to search.
